Hitchens is Dead

Christopher Hitchens, the acerbic atheist and prolific author, is dead. I reviewed his book, god is not Great a few years ago. It was a keen wit, a good writer, and a terrible philosopher of religion. Here is the review:

  1. I will miss Hitchens who had the rare gift of being as effortlessly articulate in speech as he was in his writings. He died as he lived - prodigiously chronicling for our benefit his elation, pain, condemnations and irreverence with an immaculate facility of language. Above all, he was never a bore.
